TITLE: KING KONG
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Jeff Bridges, Jessica Lange, Charles Grodin. Director: John Guillermin.
NOTES: This campy remake of the 1933 classic was Jessica Lange's film debut. It earned an Oscar for special effects. The quad for this film is invariably found with a snipe or snipes obscuring the aircraft flying around Kong?s head and, particularly, the wrecked plane clasped in his right hand. We don't know the reason for this but suspect that this was a result of some direction the distributors had been given to censor certain images contained in the poster. This quad is the only example we have seen that does not have these snipes and, as such, is a rarity.
CONDITION: Grade A. Old tape marks in blue area below titles on lower right side and one short edge tear along central fold line at bottom border, else fine. Folded, as issued.
